[EuroPython 2011] David Cramer - 21 June 2011 in "Track Spaghetti"
Building scalable web applications may seem like a distant problem, but the problem is not thinking about it before it's too late. This talk will focus on designing a scalable web application before it needs to be (and avoiding the premature optimization dilemma). It will cover topics such as efficient usage of your database, appropriate caching (and invalidation!), and what the speaker considers as best practices.
